The displays were well done and the clerk was also very informative. It was well worth the $3.00 admission fee. Also take the trail walks through the woods right behind the museum to see lush plants of the area.

There was a lot in see in this small museum. The admission was only $3. Forks is a small town and I think they did a nice job with their collection. It's worth the stop.

Like many small-town museums this one is compact and easily visited in an hour or less. Great information about the history of logging in the area, along with some interesting exhibits of the town itself. An interesting fire tower exhibit is outside with actual journals...More
